Bought the Sienna in June 99 since the
Honda Odessy's were back ordered 6
months and suggested premium fuel. At
54K miles I have not had anything more
than some minor annoyances crop up,
like intermittent emergency brake
warning light on dash. Engine and
transmission have been flawless and I
get 20-22 mpg all around and 27 mpg on
extended trips. Although I change my
oil every 3-4K miles and normally use
synthetic, I was glad to see Toyota
recognize the oil sludge problem and
extend the warranty. After reading
reviews indication transmission
problems at 70-80K miles, I am a little
concerned and hope Toyota considers
extending this warranty also.
Good power for a van and great at
hauling a lot of stuff and weight.
Very Safe, my wife was hit from behind
by a large utility van. Repairs were
$4,800, but wife didn't even get a sore
A moderately expensive vehicle should
come with better tires. The original
Firestone Affinity tires ranked last of
tires recently tested by Consumer
Reports. At 52K miles, replaced them
with less costly, but much better
performing Faulken Z512s.
